A quick flurry of activity to get the scope / cameras ready before the clouds hit….AGAIN!!! Click image to see all photos Video, click below
Ok, so I’m waiting in a que at the ferry point in Ireland waiting to go home, so time to use up my 3G MiFi time xD Best thing to do…..upload space photos
Here are a few space photos I managed to get whilst having a rare clear night in Ireland Better link is here with bigger photos
This and the last photo where taken with a Canon 60D either prime focus or as this one with a 2x Barlow and moon filter
Ok, this is not a great photo, but seeing i literally threw the scope out when the clouds parted briefly to show the moon…Well it had to be done, oh and also not calibrated the motor yet for tracking!
Well, should be getting my new scope soon, i hope And then i can get back into some decent astro photography xD
Light pollution a problem for you? If so here is an interesting link ( http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/27603 ) Primarily it’s coming from the stand point of star gazing , but I guess anyone who feels this is important can sign xD
